A white leather furniture can lit up an entire room. Nothing can give a living room a classy and elegant feel than a white leather sofa. If you have one for your room, your friends and relatives will surely envy you. Not so much because this piece of furniture is expensive, but because it is very hard to make it immaculately white. Cleaning white leather is not an easy thing to do.
White leather sofas, though they give your home a touch of elegance, can give you a tricky task of maintaining them. You cannot just wipe them down with a wet cloth. In addition, you cannot use harsh cleaners as they may ruin your sofas. Bleach and ammonia-based cleaners should never be used. Although leather sofas have durable material, they are porous in nature.
One way to ensure that your white leather is properly cleaned and maintained is to either make a gentle cleaning solution or use leather cleaner recommended by the furniture manufacturer. Cleaning your white leather every three months or at least twice a year is recommended. Professional white leather cleaning must be done at least once or twice a year, depending on the use of the sofa.
There are many ways to keep your white leather upholstery as clean as possible. We recommend you do these simple things in between professional cleanings:
Vacuum your leather to remove dust and dirt.
Remove spills right away because the longer it sits, the more time it has to go deep into the fibres of the leather, making it much harder to remove.
Always use a mild cleaning solution for white leathers.
Do not scrub your leather with any harsh abrasive. Make use of soft and clean cloth and blot the spill or stain. Do not rub the stain.
Vacuum your leather sofa after it has dried to make sure that no soap residue is left behind.
Turn and fluff cushions regularly to avoid wrinkles.
You must not expose your white leather sofa to sunlight. Sunlight can make the leather dry, leading to discoloration and cracking. Keep your sofa away from heat sources.
If there are stubborn stains that you cannot remove, call in professional leather cleaner to remove them. Do not experiment with cleaning methods.
